It is not included in the list but make sure to consider Inkscape in the Favourite Graphics application category.

Inkscape has not be around that long but they have already made lots of progress and even created the Project.

Inkscape is excellent. Very useful when combined with Scribus ( ) for publisher-ready PDF's.

Video Software category?

With all of the great video processing applications now
on Linux, you need a category for them as well. From
mpeg2enc and transcode, to Xine and Mplayer, to avidemux
and Cinlerra, and even Blender and Maya, digital content
creation tools are in really great shape on Linux.

Some applications that need to be included in voters choice awards. 1. Maya 6 for Linux (it works flawslessly on allot of distributions). 2. SoftImage XSI and XSI Express v3.0 as well. These are two Linux apps that get used allot in Hollywood , and are way more user friendly, powerful, and easier to learn over free apps like Blender. Also 3. Cinepaint ( A good video editor and companion to Gimp) that has many contributions by the pro's in the field like ILM. I wish Alias would develop a Maya 6 PLE for Linux so that others can learn how to use this great app with Linux. Sure Maya isn't cheap, but it works better in Linux than Windows XP, and is mainly used in a Linux enviroment by professional CG artists.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
